    CS6 eyedropper can't sample outside window anymore??

    John Artist Level 1

      You used to be able to select the color of ANYTHING, including a picture that may be hovering in a window from another program or anything else on the screen (i.e., a browser button color) by simply clicking on a Photoshop document with the eyedropper, not releasing the mouse, and dragging outside the Photoshop window and hovering over anything on the screen.  Now, as you scroll to the edge of the window, the window scrolls in CS6!  Ugh!  I've used this for years!  I've tried holding down different function and command keys to change behavior, and none work. Did they take this out of Photoshop after years and years of it being a function?  Any suggestions on how to do this?

       

      Thanks!
